Lucky it was an away match

Kayserispor 0 - Genclerbirligi 0

No live football for us to go to this weekend, only a certain other Ankara team playing in the capital, and so we have to rely on the good people from the Anatolian news agency for news of Gencler's away draw on Saturday night.

Having read the report though there isn't much to say. It appears that Gencler had two shots all match, and one of those was wide.

Kayserispor appeared to have quite a few more chances but they all came to nothing.

It could have all been different if the referee had given a penalty to Kayserispor in the 21st minute but the appeal was turned down. Anatolian doesn't say if it was the right decision but I assume it was as the ref was given three stars out of three for his performance.

It also isn't clear whether we were playing for the draw or for a win. Considering that Kayserspor are a pretty tough team, finished above us in the league last season and are still in the UEFA Cup I'd say an away draw is a pretty good result.

So after five weeks we have had two away draws, one away win, one home loss (to Fenerbahce) and one home win. Not so bad. but we are now four points behind League leaders Fener who beat up Antalyaspor last night.

Fingers crossed for Ankaragucu later today when they take on Gaziantepspor down in the southeast.

  1. Yes, I agree with Oz Kanka (surprise surprise !!).

    To come away from Kayseri with a point nowadays is not bad.

    On the subject of draws, I notice that CimBom are going for a Turkish record of most draws in a season !!!!

    As for tonight's match, I hope that Bosinowski sends the team out to ATTACK. It is 3 points or nothing. Watch this space for further.
